DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_BAD_CONFIG (Resolved).


Best Answer realistpnoy , 30 September 2016 - 11:05 PM

So I was able to solve it by installing Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 and connecting it to 5ghz instead of 2.4ghz. The Asus RT-AC68U have problems when connecting to 2.4ghz. Go to the full post »

Hi, I have been getting DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_BAD_CONFIG while browsing on chrome intermittently. Also, sometimes I would also get the message dns_probe_finished_no_internet. Thanks.

It sounds like you might be losing connectivity to your network. 

 

Do you use a wireless or Ethernet connection to your router?

When this happens, what is the signal strength of your connection?

 

Does switching to a wired connection resolve this?

I think its solved now after I changed the settings to google DNS. But I just got the error "no internet" on chrome an hour ago. I just restarted my laptop and its ok now...do you think the problem is with the Intel centrino wireless-n 2230? My router and internet is fine since it works on my phone.

Might not necessarily be the hardware. My wifi will go out under Windows only to work just fine in Linux. It can happen for weeks at a time (unless I stop being lazy and reinstall the adapter).

 

It could be any number of factors. Are you interested in trying to see if we can find the root cause?

That means that the computer was not able to find an active internet connection to contact the DNS servers. How far away are you from the router when you try to connect to the internet?

 

Does this happen when you get closer?

about 29 feet away from the router...Ill try to use it 6 feet away and see what happens

 

Edit: so I got the DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET error even when Im 6 feet away from the router... connection is resolved by resetting the wifi adapter

It may be driver related. 

 

Do you have another device to verify connectivity with?

 

Do you see any other wireless networks?

It probably is driver related since theres a lot of people having the same issues with Intel centrino wireless-n 2230. Yes It detects other wireless networks and my phone and the other 3 laptops does not have any issues with the internet connection.
